Fast Lense

Gidday all. I put in a thread about lenses for my trip to Africa and had a few replies about fast lenses, FA50 etc.
I was wanting something a bit more wide angle. I will be buying the P50-300 and am looking at either a PDA21f3.2 or a Sigma 24f1.8.
I have a Sigma 18-55, but will be spending time at a few waterholes at night so a f1-3 will be handy.
Can any one who has used either of these lenses give some feedback, please.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks Syb. I had checked the pentax lens review and didn't realise there were reviews done on other lenses.

Take a look at Sigma 30mm f/1.4. It's a great lens sharp even wide open.

Sigma 30mm at lens review database.
